Tenaska Frontier Generating Station

Tenaska Frontier Partners, Ltd. - Shiro, Texas

The Tenaska Frontier Generating Station near Shiro in Grimes County, Texas, is a natural gas-fueled combined-cycle electric generating facility developed and owned by Tenaska Frontier Partners, Ltd. Tenaska affiliates manage and operate the plant, which includes three General Electric Frame 7FA gas turbines and one General Electric steam turbine.

At the time it was developed in the late 1990s, Tenaska Frontier was one of the largest non-utility electric generation facilities in North America and one of the first plants able to dispatch power to multiple grids beyond the Electric Reliability Council of Texas (ERCOT). Electricity had previously been transmitted in and out of ERCOT only through two expensive direct current (DC) interties. Tenaska Frontier interconnects with ERCOT through CenterPoint Energy’s 345-kilovolt (kV) transmission line and with grids outside of ERCOT, in the Eastern Interconnected Grid, through Entergy’s 345-kV transmission line. Tenaska Frontier’s dual grid capability has been featured in Power Engineering magazine. In 2001, the plant was named Project of the Year by Power Engineering for the innovation. Tenaska Frontier also has the ability to generate power using fuel oil.

Exelon Generation Company, LLC purchases the facility’s total output and markets the power both within ERCOT and all of the Eastern Interconnected Grid. The plant can power more than 830,000 homes.

The plant provides 28 well-paying, full-time jobs and, in 2016, paid more than $4.8 million in salaries and payments to local subcontractors and vendors. Approximately $42.7 million in property taxes has been paid since the plant began operation, of which more than $34.9 million supported area school districts.

Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center South

CSOLAR IV South, LLC - Calexico, California

Tenaska Imperial Solar Energy Center South, near Calexico in Southern California’s Imperial Valley, uses photovoltaic technology to convert sunlight directly into electricity. The project is comprised of 1.6 million ground-mounted photovoltaic panels. It was the first large-scale solar project to begin construction in Imperial Valley and was also one of the largest commercially financed solar projects in the United States at the time.

Tenaska Imperial South transmits electricity to San Diego Gas & Electric Company (SDG&E) via the Sunrise Powerlink transmission line under a 25-year power purchase agreement. When operating at peak times, it can produce enough electricity to meet the needs of approximately 44,000 California homes.

Tenaska Imperial South represents an investment of more than $500 million in new capital injected into the Imperial Valley. Tenaska was the first solar developer to designate Imperial County as the place of purchase for all of its solar panels, as well as other local construction goods and services. Tenaska Imperial South awarded more than $20 million in contracts to local companies during construction and hired 500 workers, 70 percent of whom came from surrounding communities.

The Imperial Valley Economic Development Corporation named it Project of the Year in 2013.

Tenaska Washington Partners II

Tenaska Washington Partners II, L.P.

Tenaska won the bid to build a 248-megawatt (MW) natural gas-fueled electric generating plant in Frederickson, Washington, and signed a long-term power contract with the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) in the early 1990s. In 1995, with the project nearly completed and two-thirds of the costs committed, BPA repudiated the contract. Tenaska sued for breach of contract and won, recovering $170 million in costs, full payment of banks and $160 million in damages for lost equity.

Tenaska takes pride in the development, engineering, financing and construction of the project and still considers this a major development success in the company’s portfolio.
